A walker has been found following a 10-hour search and rescue operation in the Cairngorms.
Cairngorm and Braemar Mountain Rescue teams were called out shortly before 18:00 on Saturday.
Police were able to trace the man’s phone on the north side of Ben Macdui, but a rescue helicopter could not be scrambled due to blizzard-like conditions.
He was eventually located at about 23:30 and walked off the mountain.
The walker returned to safe ground at 03:30 on Sunday.
Images and videos from the mountain showed teams attempting the rescue in heavy snowfall and howling wind.
A statement posted on social media by Braemar Mountain Rescue said it had been a “very long night”.
